  • I usually don't take them down until after the New Year, but this year I just couldn't take it any more! lol. I took the tree, all the home decor, the outdoor stuff and put it all away! My two boys are out of school until first week of January and it was all too much, Nerf rockets being shot into the tree , my three year old "climbing" the tree to get them , um yeah I am pretty much over it !

  • No. We barely finished getting them up about two days before Christmas because we all had so much going on, so I have a feeling we'll end up leaving them up for a bit just so we all can feel like it was worth it.

  • I took my tree down earlier this afternoon. It's been up since before Thanksgiving and it just takes too much space in my trailor. The rest of my snowmen stuff is still out though.

  • Not yet. I think we will wait until after new years. I am enjoying having an artificial tree and not having to take a real one down straight away.

  • Nope, not yet but planning on it this weekend. It'll take a week just to get things packed up again!

  • Well, we celebrate Advent from the Sunday after Thanksgiving until Dec. 24th with a wreath & candles, blue & silver colors in the decor, and singing Christmas Carols like O Come Emmanuel. The Nativity creche gets built up more every evening, and Mary & Joseph come closer with the donkey. Dec. 24th the wreath on the table gives way to the Christmas tree and Mary & Joseph settle into the stable. We are set to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas. Baby Jesus appears Christmas morning, the shepherds arrive that night and the 3 Kings figures start their journey toward the stable. Different Christmas Carols now get sung, and different Christmas stories get told or read. In January, 3 Kings carols are added and they arrive. Then they start their return journey .... things start to get packed up after 3 Kings' Day Jan.6. So by mid-January, Christmas decor has been replaced by winter & spring imagery. I love it !!
